Hi,
i've edited the attatched script to suit my company's need for an signature in outlook.
Most of the time it works good however if I reply to certain emails the signature will show up with no formatting on the text and without logo.
I guess this has to do with html/text format in the original mail ?

how can I get the signature to work every time ?

Regards
Jon

We Usually use one Text file Coded in HTML.
Works Fine, Just need to Edit the file for each user and save it as html.
When you start your Outlook add the signature saved on the local Machine.

ok, thats not quite an answer to the question. The problem is the apperance of the signature.
usually it's looking nice when it's placed in a new email but somethimes when I reply to an email the signature is just plain text with no company logo.

Jon,

There is no way to control the format of the emails you receive from others.  If they send you an email formatted as text and you convert to HTML to send a reply with a cool looking signature block, they may not be able to read it at all.  There are email clients out there that do not support HTML.  That wouldn't look good on your company.  

Your best bet is to include a text-based signature that may not be as cool looking but will always work.  Or you could have two different signatures, one for a new email that is HTML-based and visually appealing and another for replies that includes the contact information you need to provide.

Thanks,
tumtum

To clarify, they would be able to read it but it would be HTML code, and difficult to understand.

sorry for my late reply, yes, I guess you are right tumtum73, I think we will go for 2 signatures, one for new messages, one for replies.
Do you know if it's possible to control the line distance in a script.
Maybe a word template ?

I have these "demands" from our designers.
font: verdana and verdana bold, 8 pkt size
line distance: 9.6 pkt.
black level (text): 85 %
